Harry, A History
November 02, 2008, 11:37 AM
Hi all! Harry, A History comes out officially in two days and so far the reaction has been touching. Thank you! Some announcements:
First, I will have my first-ever booksigning at the Borders in Columbus Circle, Manhattan, this coming Wednesday at 7 p.m. I hope to see you there! You can RSVP for the event or invite others HERE. You can get a map to the event here!
If you live in NYC and would like to be part of a special project on Election Day, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third, I have posted another piece of the Jo interview, this time about the spoiler derbies that happened before the release of each book after PoA.
Next, I'm issuing two challenges to help spread the word: A YouTube Vlogging challenge which you can read more about here (. Secondly, if you have a Facebook/MySpace/LiveJournal, whatever, and want to help get the word out, in the coming week change your profile pic to either the book's artwork (a large version of which you can download here), or yourself holding the book. We'll put them all together somehow. Thank you in advance!
If you like you can get more updates by joining the Harry, A History Facebook group here. More coming soon!
I just received mine today! Gonna read it right now!
Congratulations, Melissa! Long time coming. I so wish you could have a book signing, here in South Carolina, but probably not sigh I, too, have a “lack of cash-on-hand”, and will have to wait for “Ho, ho, ho”….with my fingers crossed, of course. I do have an advantage! My In-laws are big HP fans! Again, good going, Melissa! Keep up the good work, and as someone, further back in the postings, said] “thank you for keeping our little HP community together!”
Looking forward to reading your book Melissa, I’ve ordered it through Amazon and it should reach me here in London tomorrow! Well done to you and a huge thanks to everyone at Leaky for adding to the fun and enjoyment experienced by all us HP lovers everywhere. It’s been a unique experience to live through, helped along by you all. Take a bow, you all deserve it.
Oh! Congradulations Melissa! Canada is EXTREMELY close to USA, and Toronto isn’t far from the border and a small little town called Ajax, isn’t far from Toronto! You should visit it! ; ) and do some book signing! Really you should come!
I just got back from my local bookstore and they had the book already on the shelves, and all I can say is WOW. Ms. Anelli has done a wonderful job. The book took me back to the day I first began my journey with Harry. At times it moved me to tears as I fell in love with the magical story all over again. All I can say is thank you for giving us a way back to the beginning.
Election Day: No school! Go McCain and Palin!!
My copy came in the mail and I’ve already started reading. Congratulations, Melissa, and thanks for sharing!
Just ordered my copy! It should be here on Thursday- I’m so excited! Congrats Melissa!
It’s wonderful so far Melissa! I want to live in NY! I want my book signed! You think you’ll ever do a book signing in WV? lol
I am trying to get all the HP fans out there to get Melissa’s book featured on “Entertainment Weekly’s” Must List. Either this week’s or next week’s issue would get her some nice recognition. I know that banned together, HP fans can do anything they set their minds toward.
So, nominate Melissa and “Harry: A History” at www.ew.com/mustlist or text MUST to 467467 if you have the SPRINT network.
If you can’t find a nomination path on the Must List website, I think what you have to do is wait until later in this week when the Entertainment Weekly Popwatch website asks for new nominations to the Must List. Then you post Melissa’s book as your suggestion in the comments of that week’s post. (I HOPE that is the way it works.)
Anyway, let’s do our best to get the word out there about Harry: A History..Pass the word along to your other HP friends! And thanks!
I know your book will be a hit, can’t wait to get a copy. I want to know sales statistics too, it may just beat records for HP7.

Congratulations, Melissa! I got your book through Amazon. Wish I could come to the signing, but I doubt it. Best of luck—I hope it’s a best-seller!
